Securus Technologies is an American for-profit prison technology company. The company’s has its headquarters in Dallas, Texas. It was founded in 1986. The firm is one of the largest providers of detainee communications, government information, management solutions, and parolee tracking. It serves more than 2600 facilities in USA, Canada, and Mexico.
Securus Technologies recently announced that they would offer free calls to inmates incarcerated in the Louisiana State Prison. Their reason was prompted by recent floods that had affected the area. The plan includes each prisoner getting one free phone call per day from September 7th.
Securus Technologies announced their partnership with the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections (LA DOC) on September 1, 2016. The move by Securus Technology may be viewed as very humane in that they have kept the interest of the inmates at heart. Richard A. “Rick” Smith, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Securus Technologies, said that connecting inmates with their family was among the key responsibilities of the company. He continued by saying that the task was more vital because of the recent floods that had hit the Louisiana area. The flooding was very severe, and that is why he felt that the inmates needed to maintain communication with their loved ones to reduce anxiety and stress. Watch this video on Youtube.
It is estimated that the prisoners will make more than 250000 free calls that will cost Securus Technologies almost $300000. In addition to the free calls, Securus Technologies will give out contributions of $50000 to the inmate welfare fund at the Louisiana Department of Corrections.
It is a stark fact of life here in the U.S., and not one that everyone wants to know about, but there are a lot of people serving time in prisons. It is easy for some people to write off inmates, and forget that they still have lives outside of the bars and walls of the prison they are in. These people have family members, friends and other folks that they absolutely need to stay in touch with. I knew a little bit about the systems that exist to allow inmates to communicate with their contacts outside of prison, but was very upset to find out that some providers of these services may be ripping off inmates and their family/friends.
One prominent provider of inmate telecommunications services is a company called Global Tel Link (GTL). I found some troubling information about GTL via a recent press release from Securus Technologies. According to this press release – and a series of press releases that Securus Technologies plans on publishing in the near future – GTL has been up to some business practices that have resulted in inmates and their family/friends getting bilked for quite a bit of money.
In the article I recently checked out, it appears that Securus Technologies has quite a bit of information about the shady business practices that GTL has been using for some time now. He also expresses disappointment in how GTL has shown a lack of integrity. The upcoming series of additional press releases will likely outline some of the most serious charges leveled against GTL.
Like me, many people have heard about companies overcharging their customers accidentally. That does not appear to be the case, according to information published by Securus Technologies. In the article I checked out, it is alleged that not only did GTL overcharge customers, but that they did so on purpose and with the only end goal being the intention to overcharge for their services.
It’s not a good thing to find out a major provider of inmate telecommunications services is duping their customers, but I was happy to find the press release from Securus Technologies that helps to expose some serious wrongdoings to the general public.
